Alongside Melvin Van Peebles, Pam Grier, Rudy Ray Moore, Richard Roundtree, and other luminaries, the principals of TRUCK TURNER — Isaac Hayes, Nichelle Nichols, Yaphet Kotto, Scatman Crothers… — leave giant footprints straight up the middle of the great American myth we’ve collectively written for ourselves. Hayes, legendary multihyphenate and soul musician, cuts a charming scythe as fast-talking bounty hunter playing opposite Uhura-turned-madame Nichols, tbh one of cinema’s great unsung villains.
